The best thing about this picnic a week ago, was seeing our great nephews and catching up with their parents. The most interesting part of our picnic was observing other picnics in this park, just miles from the headquarters of Apple Inc.
In one direction, we watched a family gathering with colorful saris and cricket bats. The patriarch of the group was grilling kabobs nearby. Another gathering had little girls in colorful party dresses, a table of wrapped gifts, a pinata and balloons. The playgrounds were filled with children and parents of all colors!
Mom's Picnic List
In honor of my mother on the first Mother's Day since she has passed, I dedicate a new list... Mom's Picnic List!
Mom loved picnics and she raised her kids to appreciate the simple pleasures of food, family and friends in the great out of doors.
I will spend a year reflecting on as many past picnics as I can remember. But, I'll also
appreciate the here and now by creating new picnic experiences. My goal is to share at least 60 picnic memories, since that's how many years Mom was a mom!
Let the picnics begin!
